That's true! Y'know, when shoe shopping in the states, I find myself sizing up, sometimes up to 1 full size! But back home or anywhere else in Asia, even under similar climate circumstances, I can just buy normal.I've been wearing Tods for a long time and I think it depends on the last (design of the sole). I can't wear the super-flat, pointy-toed version at all but the rounded version of the loafer is my favorite shoe of all time.
Weird thing is that I am a consistent 37.5 if I buy them overseas and a 38 or even 38.5 if I buy them in the States.
I am sorry. I can imagine your excitement and then disappointment. Do you have a high arch? The loafers are sometimes tricky for me and I have a high arch but the ballerinas usually fit fine. They do stretch as well.Purchased my first pair of Tod's (online)-imagine my excitement!
My Tod's came, and I couldn't even get half of my foot in it-imagine my disappointment! My question is: Do Tod's seem to run on the narrow side? Maybe it was just the style of the shoe. I'm going to send them back for exchange, but unsure what to get (Store policy -no refunds). Help!
I own a LOT of Tod's shoes and my feet are not small by any means. Most other shoe brands are too narrow for me, but not Tod's. I noticed a difference between their heels and their loafers. In heels, I always wear a size 40 and in loafers, it's a 39.5.
Go with your normal European size. We have been comparing Euro to US. I think you will be fine.
